Galliarde XIV
By Tielman Susato (1500-1561)
 
S A T B
 
 
Galliarde XIV from Susato’s  “Dancerye,” published in 1551. In many ways this piece is the quintessential galliard with the “My country ‘tis of thee” rhythm in the first measure and a big ol’ hemiola leading to the cadence of each section. The interest for me in this dance is its harmonies. The piece is in G but the modality seems mostly minor because of the B flats and F naturals. The first section cadences on A, the second on D and the third on G, a logical arrangement, though not an expected one.
